    Do you carry your Glock condition 1?

    For those who can legally carry, either open or (preferably) concealed......do you carry your Glock with one in the pipe?

    Took me a bit of time to work up the comfort and confidence in myself and my gun to carry this way, since Glocks have no external safety, but after only a few weeks its become second nature to me. Anyone have strong thoughts for or against this? I think if you have a secure holster that completely buries the trigger you have nothing to worry about. I wear the DeSantis IWB holster around 4 o clock that provides a nice deep carry but allows me to get a decent purchase on the gun when I draw at the range.

    Glock, M&P, revolver, Makarov, or 1911 (or any else for that matter) all carried loaded and ready.

    If it's not in Condition One, then your self-defense pistol is about as useful as a lightweight rock.

    If you are afraid to carry a gun in Condition One, maybe you should re-think this whole self-defense business.
    I understand that Israeli Krav-Maga is the coming thing in unarmed self-defense.
    But I wouldn't know: I carry a loaded, ready-to-use pistol. (I'm too old for all that physical exertion.)

    Yepp, once I spoke with a few fellow enthusiasts recently and realized how detrimental an unloaded pistol situation could be....from any number of potential situations....I realized that carrying C1 was the best option all things considered. I carried Israeli style for the last 2 years or so and always re-assured myself that taking a second to rack the slide in a situation was no big deal....until I watched my first Tueller drill demonstration. I wouldnt stand a chance...very few on this planet would. Lesson learned...thats why I love these gun communities!

    Or you could use this.



    EFA-2 belt holster

    A 'quick-response' EFA-2 belt holster made from hardened polymer with steel insertions. Its simple, but ingenious design allows the pistol to be taken out either through the top or, if pushed down hard, through the bottom. This single action switches the safety guard off (1), cocks the trigger (2) and chambers the cartridge (3)...The EFA-2K version is shorter and comes with EKP-01 belt clip, which allows to change the angular position of the holster (see manuals). EFA-2 can accommodate a standard 9mm Makarov (PM); IZH-71; IZH79-9T pistols and MP-654K co2 air pistol. Print-out User's Manuals in PDF format

    All of my carry guns are carried in full battery. And none of them have any external safeties. Just another impediment to doing what needs to be done if and when called upon. My opinion, of course... your mileage may vary.

    When I lose confidence in my ability to safely carry a loaded gun, I'll just wear overalls and open-carry a claw hammer in the hammer loop.

    Carrying the Glock with one in the chamber is no different that carrying a double action revolver with a loaded cylinder. Carry it loaded and ............... be ready.

    I was only half joking with this one. I first heard of it on an episode of "Deadliest Warrior" season 1 episode 6 Green Beret vs. Spetznaz the pistol holster combo is talked about 30 minutes into the episode. Deadliest Warrior is on netflix instant and originally played on Spike's

    If your not gonna carry in condition 1 why bother carry at all. Some people say i can rack it if i need it......wrong answer. If they (the non 1ers) ever find thereselves in that situation they will be sorry. If you ever have to draw (and we all hope we dont) you will see how your gross motor skills tend to take over.

    Should you keep your hand gun chambered in condition one or zero in the house when the gun is off your person?
    Maybe you should maybe you shouldn't.You might have kids running around. Why even have a gun in the house if it's not chambered,Why, because you still have access to the gun if needed.
    Why carry a gun unchambered i don't know but you still have access when needed in a hundred different situations. also my opinion ,an aggresive perp will take your gun from some who have the right to carry ,when he does take your gun it will be in position 0 or 1 ,now that's scary
    And you can't practice that at the gun range. Don't forget every situational encounter or threat is different. no two are ever alike.like snowflakes,lol.
    avoidance, running away, retreating, giving up your wallet are all options.

    That wasn't the question everyone was answering...with their opinions.

    If you choose to have the option to protect yourself with a gun, you also have to choose to what level of threat you are willing to protect yourself against. The more prepared you want to be for the wide variety of different scenarios that you might find yourself in, the more serious you have to be about making sure you can get a loaded gun into play.

    If you have kids and have a high level of threat, you may need to keep your gun on your body. If you trust your door locks and security measures, you have numerous, less intrusive options.

    Wow,

    Well, I actually disagree with most of the people in here. How I carry depends greatly on where I am at. I prefer to carry a glock WITHOUT one in the chamber

    Say what you will about that, but 99.9% of the time the gun is staying holstered. The .1% of the time where it comes out I still have to decide whether to take someone's life or not. I'll use that extra millisecond of contemplation to rack the slide (with proper draw/rack training).

    You know if your riding around in the hood or something, you can chamber a round and then carry it. I do this kinda stuff all the time. But if your walking EVERYWHERE with a round in the chamber, kinda paranoid to me.

    Just my opinion.

    Do you carry your Glock condition 1?

    Jake, I do not think that prepared = paranoid. That said, I have a serious question for you.
    Have you practiced drawing and racking the slide before someone can cover 21 feet? 30 feet? 45 feet? Can you do it before the reach you each time?
    How about from 10 feet with a knife out?
    I, when presented this challenge, was unable to draw and wrack the slide. When I KNOW I have to (competition) draw an shoot, I can do so from IWB and concealment in under 2 seconds. I can cover 30 feet on the same time.

    Just some food for thought.
